Yuletide Story: The Devil's Canoe - 12/07/2012

People often ask me if I ever tell original stories or if I ever write my own stories. I usually bristle at this question, as if it suggests that I'm just parroting other people's stories word-for-word. When I  find a story I like, it goes through a transformation as I learn it, change it, drop details, add new details, and slowly make it my own. You may be able to see a thread in the story that connects it to its traditional source, but the story I tell is mine . That being said, this is a story that I wrote. I wrote it around the classic Quebecois story La Chasse Galerie , but the presence of the devil's canoe as a plot-device is the only thing I re-used. The rest of it is my own creation. I don't tell this story often enough, mainly because it's a story I associate with this time of year. It was recorded before a live audience at Chateau Ramezay in Old Montreal in December of 2010. The Devil's Canoe (11:35) told by JD Hickey
